If you are struggling with your Minecraft world you can always get help with the use of Minecraft commands. Minecraft commands have been around for quite some time now, but not everyone knows how to use them. In this article, we will show you how to use commands in Minecraft and we will tell you about the 5 most useful Minecraft commands. The amount of commands in Minecraft may vary from version to version, and if you are strictly playing survival mode or on a server with friends.

How to use commands in Minecraft?

To use commands in Minecraft, you have to allow cheats before you create your world. When you click "Create New World", there is an option called "Allow Cheats". It is turned off by default, but you need to turn it on if you want to use commands. If you disable the option you will not be able to use commands in Minecraft.

All Minecraft commands start with a forward slash (/). To see a Minecraft commands list, open your chat and type the forward slash (/). Hover your mouse over the commands to click and have them appear in your chat without typing each letter separately. Additionally, you can use your scroll wheel to navigate up and down, allowing you to view all Minecraft commands in one place.

Minecraft commands can be hard to use, so we made a list of useful ones to enhance your gaming experience.

#5 Teleport Command

The Minecraft teleport command can be a game-changer, offering a quick solution to reaching distant locations or connecting with friends across your Minecraft world.

To teleport to a specific location, you need to use the following Minecraft command.

  • /teleport <x, y, z>, for example /teleport 100 75 100

Be cautious when teleporting in Minecraft. If you choose the wrong Y level, you may get trapped inside of blocks. Mainly pay attention if you are teleporting to the Stony Peaks or Jagged Peaks biome. Jagged Peaks is one of the tallest biomes in the game, able to reach the height limit of the Overworld.

To teleport to one of your friends, you need to use the following command. It works vice versa as well by replacing the order of usernames in the command.

  • /teleport Steve Alex

#4 Keep Inventory

The Keep Inventory command in Minecraft is helpful for dangerous adventures like exploring the Nether or Deep Dark biome. If the player dies, they won't lose their items. Plus, it's a great way to focus on exploration and discovery without the worry of losing your hard-earned loot. Explore without worries, knowing your items are safe and that they won't be lost!

To enable the Minecraft command for keep inventory, we have to write the following Minecraft command;

  • /gamerule keepInventory (true | false)

The Minecraft give command allows players to obtain any block or item in the game effortlessly. If you're struggling to find or craft a particular item, this command comes to the rescue. You can save so much of your time and do other useful things for your Minecraft world by using commands. Using the Minecraft give command is pretty straightforward, all you have to do is write the following Minecraft command;

  • /give Username minecraft:bamboo_block 64 - this will give the player 64 blocks of bamboo.

#2 XP Command

To quickly gain experience points or levels in the game, use the Minecraft xp command. Two ways to use this command exist, depending on whether you want to add whole levels or just points to your xp.

  • To add experience points to a user, use the command "/xp add Username <amount> (levels | points)". If you choose levels, whole levels will be added. If you choose points, only parts of the levels will be added. To learn more about how XP works in Minecraft we recommend you to check out this article.

The Minecraft locate command will display you the coordinates of the biome or structure that you are searching for:

  • /locate biome minecraft:cherry_grove
